U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists at neighboring facilities in Santa Cruz, CA, met to share research information at an all-day symposium on July 8. The morning session took place at the USGS Pacific Science Center, and the afternoon session at the Santa Cruz Laboratory, a component of the Southwest Fisheries Science Center of NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The two facilities are less than a mile apart. Center directors Sam Johnson (USGS) and Churchill Grimes (NMFS) arranged the symposium to give the two groups of researchers an opportunity to meet and share information about their work and to encourage future interactions and collaboration.

Scientists from each center gave short (15-20 minute) presentations about their research in a program organized by Guy Cochrane (USGS) and David Boughton (NOAA). Topics ranged from sea-floor mapping and sediment dynamics to salmon ecology and molecular genetics, with sea-floor fish habitat being a common theme. Kathleen Donahue (USGS) assisted in organizing the meeting, which included a morning mixer before the symposium and a social hour afterward. The day was productive and fun, and plans are underway to make the symposium an annual event.
